This World

This world is spending entirely too much energy fighting about what is, what was, and what might have been, and not enough energy on creating what it needs to be. Sometimes the solutions are simple if we just shut up and do the right thing even if it’s not the easy thing.

Runner’s World Cover Contest

Legends, a Bust, and No Big Island (This Year)

That pretty much sums up my weekend at the inaugural Challenge Atlantic City. I had a great few days leading into the race.
